Wikileaks writers killed in Kenya
By News Release :: 2876 Views :: National Politics, World News, World Politics [Click to print]
From Wikileaks: Two Wikileaks-related senior human rights activists have been assassinated. We ask for your assistance.
On Thursday afternoon March 5, Oscar Kamau Kingara, director of the Kenyan based Oscar legal aid Foundation, and its programme coordinator, John Paul Oulo, were shot at close range in their car less than a mile from President Kibaki's residence. The two were on their way to a meeting at the Kenyan National Commission on Human Rights.
Both had been investigating extrajudicial assassinations by the Kenyan Police. Part of their work forms the basis of the "Cry of Blood" report Wikileaks released on November 1 last year and subsequent followups, including the UN indictment last month.

The worst that can happen, is that Wikileaks pros are telling BS.
This happens in this thread.
WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has won the Amnesty 2009 New Media Award for work exposing hundreds of recent extrajudicial assassinations in Kenya.
Four people associated with investigating the killings have themselves been murdered, including noted human rights lawyers Oscar Kingara and John Paul Oulo, who were assassinated driving to an afternoon meeting at the Kenyan National Commission on Human Rights in March.
In accepting the award, Mr. Assange stated "It is a reflection of the courage and strength of Kenyan civil society that this injustice was documented. Through the courageous work of organizations such as the Oscar foundation, the KNHCR, Mars Group Kenya and others we had the primary support we needed to expose these murders to the world. I know that they will not rest, and we will not rest, until justice is done

Better pull your boots up boys! The bull#e is getting thick.
Assange becomes more pathetic each day. If Assange really had something significant, why would he not put it out there from day one? If I had thousands of "secret" documents, I would weed through the trivial nonsense, post the BIG STORY and disappear. Assange is more concerned with blowing up his ego than exposing truth.
